The truck-driver and part-time DJ (known a...s Mr Moonlight) was an easy-going fellow with no enemies. Or so everyone thought.When Ryan's body was found 22 months later on the farm of Mary Lowry, the wealthy young widow he had been seeing, it was clear that he had met a violent end.And the most likely person to have brought about that end? Pat Quirke, the man who had 'discovered' the body - Mary Lowry's brother-in-law, financial advisor, tenant and one-time lover.Following the longest running murder trial in Irish criminal history Quirke was convicted of murder in May 2019. Getting to that day had taken years of exhaustive work by gardai. The Murder of Mr Moonlight is the definitive account of their investigation as well as the compelling story of how an innocent man paid the price for another man's obsessions.Catherine Fegan, Irish Journalist of the Year (2017), and Chief Correspondent at the Irish Daily Mail, covered every day of Quirke's trial. Over many months she also conducted interviews in Tipperary and further afield. She has written an extraordinary insightful and meticulous account of the case that gripped the nation.

Fegan proves her journalistic mettle, delivering forensic detail in accessible language ...

              When trucker Bobby Ryan, vanished after leaving his girlfriend Mary Lowry's home on a bright June morning in 2011, all who knew him were mystified. Using the name Mr Moonlight, Ryan was also a part-time DJ and popular all over Tipperary. And as far as his family and friends were ...concerned something terrible must have happened. But they had no inkling of what that could be. Nearly two years later, Mary Lowry's brother-in-law Patrick Quirke found Ryan's body in a slurry tank on Lowry's farm, which he had been leasing. The gardai were immediately suspicious of Quirke and embarked on an investigation that would reveal a tortured affair between him and Mary Lowry. They uncovered a level of sexual jealousy and desire for control over Lowry, and over her land, that would lead to Quirke killing his rival. Following the longest murder trial in the history of the State, Quirke was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. The Murder of Mr Moonlight is a fascinating account of the fated love triangle. Catherine Fegan of the Irish Daily Mail attended the full trial and has done extensive additional research in Tipperary. Her book is full of extraordinary revelations and insights into the story that gripped the nation.
